Exercise for women – especially over 60, plays a critical role in their overall health and fitness. Women in their 60’s are at risk for osteoporosis and weaker bone density. This can result in broken bones that are difficult to heal. Building muscle helps to stimulate growth and strength thereby reducing these risks. Additionally, in some cases, exercise has alleviated and/or reduced symptoms related to menopause such as hot flashes. As women go through menopause, exercise further reduces the risk of heart problems. Cardiovascular and strength training provide many benefits to women by maintaining muscle mass.
